Marvel's New Anime MARVEL FUTURE AVENGERS is Coming Out This Summer
East and West collide, it seems, in more ways than one. The western comics of Marvel have announced that they are continuing production with an Avengers Anime, and it looks like it could be a good combination.
Madhouse Studios, who is in charge of making the new series, has done some good work in the past with Marvel anime, but nothing has really been a huge hit. I think a large part of that has to do with it focusing too much on the old and not enough on bringing something new to the table. They aren't making the same mistake this time.
The series is called Marvel Future Avengers and stars many of the Avengers that we know and love including Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, and the Wasp, and mixes them with a new group of young kids with powers. The main kid is Makoto, a child who gains powers from evil gene manipulation.
This is what I have been looking for in a Marvel anime adaption. New blood to make things interesting. Seeing the Marvel characters in an anime style isn't enough. We want a young character trying to become them. This is one of the first Marvel based anime series that I'm really looking forward to. I think with it's kids featured in the Marvel world and getting to interact with the Avengers, a lot of great things can get done. The anime will also be getting a Manga adaptation which I'm also looking forward to. Check out another promo image below and let us know what you think.
The series will be released this summer.
